  1. If you guy's want to turn this into a racist rant I'm out. TTFN
  2. Let's not go there........respectfully JB
  3. HK Although I don't live in an area which is heavily populated with immigrant nations, within my own area the Filipino community tend to keep to themselves, same with the Indian community, a high number of which are employed at the Local Hospital. I think it is fair to say, that part of the problems being experienced in the present day, is lack of integration, which leads to territorial areas, in which those inhabitants feel more safe amongst their own people. There is no answer, it will just have to play itself out, in my opinion.
  4. How true this is I'm not sure........ Lady Astor was once reputed to have been asked if she had any objections to immigrants living next door to her, of course not, why would I object, was her reply. Then a member of Parliament commented, well she wouldn't would she, her home (hidden within it's own grounds ) is a about a mile from her nearest neighbour! ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, To put things in perspective here in UK, yes there has always been inner city problems, countryside wise, although there was more access to weapons in farming communities, you very rarely heard of murders, now with more easier transport routes, the troubles of the Inner cities are infiltrating areas like never before, even remote parts of Scotland have crime/ drug related problems. That said, is the UK any more dangerous than any other Country, I think not.
  5. Having just spent three days unexpected in Hospital, I certainly didn't see it coming! Yet another re-occurring Urinary infection knocked me off my feet. During my time in hospital I was amazed, how the nurses especially, cope with all they have to deal with in a over-stretched NHS. One grateful guy.
  6. Sorry to spoil your dream.....Into every heart a little rain must fall.
  7. I wonder where the expression "Filthy Rich" came from? It would seem all is not well in Dubai after Sheikh Mohammed Rashid al Maktoum's 6th wife has done a runner from their £85 million home in London. While I understand that money doesn't bring forever happiness, why is the expression used to refer to mega rich people.......Just a thought.

  8. How about the already run flat tyres.....just a thought

  10. Jack, Ludy's dry cough was put down to the side effects of her Diabetes tablets, after all tests and change of medication it's gone!
  11. Welcome to the forum Winefreda Hope you find lots of information that helps to make a final decision as to where you both would like to spend your days. Good Luck for the future.
  12. Jack as far as I know is correct, however like you say Jim, how would they know if you turn up at A&E? You are more likely to be questioned at point of entry to UK, as to why you are returning after a long period of time.
  13. Ah yes, but have you tried to convince Filipina's to eat any thing other than Jasmine rice, in UK! Tesco Jasmine rice is @£2;00-1Kg also Basmati @ £3;00-2KG
  14. This is a near as I can get to the answer...Can Expats retuning to UK receive Medical attention. British expats from outside Europe must pay for NHS hospital care - Telegraph Expat pensioners in Oz returning to UK because they can't afford health care
  15. The only other group a few years back that I was aware of, were Chinese cockle-pickers in Morecambe bay Sadly a number of them died when the in coming tide cut them off, needless to say they drowned. It then came to light that they were living in terrible conditions and paid very little and had to pay back loans to come to England to the Gang masters. There was a connection to British wholesalers buying the cockles, on a small scale. But you are right, I'm sure there is a lot going on that we don't see.
